The EU Sample Clauses

The EU. The distribution of competences across the EU and its Member States was, as we alluded to supra, uncertain at the moment the Uruguay Round was launched. It was clarified at the end of the round, when the EU jointly requested an opinion from the European Court of Justice (ECJ) on this matter. Although sitting in the driver’s seat, and act- ing as if it was fully competent, throughout the round the EU agent, the Commission, was on a tight leash: its negotiating positions were not only ex ante decided but also ex post scrutinized by the EU Member States. De facto, however, this does not seem to have been a major impediment.92 Moreover, a positive external effect stemmed from the intra-EU distribution of competences: the common agent, the Commission, had to report back to 12 Member States with divergent interests. The EU kept very compre- hensive and detailed records of each and every discussion, participated in practically all meetings, and emerged as a key player in the negotiations.

The EU. On 1 May 2004, the new EU Regulation on Technology Transfer Agreements en- tered into force.96 This Regulation is the result of the EU’s overhauling and “mod- ernizing” its entire enforcement system as well as reconsidering its policies vis- a`-vis horizontal and vertical cooperation, and, in particular, its policy vis-a`-vis licensing agreements.97 By a “more economic approach” the Regulation clearly 91 See Xxx, Newberg, U.S. Enforcement Approaches to the Antitrust-Intellectual Property Interface, in Anderson, Gallini, at 343, 347 et seq. 92 See Section 5.2. 93 OECD, Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises – Revision 2000–, Paris 2000, at 26 (text), 53 et seq. (commentary). 94 For the various approaches within the WTO see Xxxxx, Globalization, Competition and Trade Policy: Issues and Challenges, in Za¨ ch, 3, 25 et seq.; Xxxxxxxxxx, Competition-oriented Reforms of the WTO World Trade System – Proposals and Policy Options, ibid. at 43 et seq. 95 See WTO, Report of the Working Group on the Interaction Between Trade and Competition Policy to the General Council of December 8, 1998 (WT/WGTCP/2); WTO, Annual Report 1997, 72; Heinemann, Problems of Intellectual Property Rights and Competition Policy – The Approach of the WTO Working Group on Trade and Competition, in Za¨ ch, at 299 et seq. 96 See Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) 2004 L 123/11. See also above, under Section 3 of this Chapter. 97 See European Commission, Commission Evaluation Report of 20.12.2001 on the Transfer of Technology Block Exemption Regulation No. 240/96 (Technology Transfer Agreements under Article 81) (COM(2001) 786 final). See <xxxx:// 0786en01.pdf>. 570 Competition distinguishes between licensing agreements concluded between competitors and those between non-competitors. A broadly defined (automatic) block exemption is granted, for competing undertakings, where the combined market share of the un- dertakings party to an agreement does not exceed 20% of the affected relevant tech- nology and product market. For non-competing undertakings, the automatic block exemption is granted where the market share of each of the parties to the agree- ment does not exceed 30% of the affected relevant technology and product mar- ket.98 Above these market shares even horizontal agreements would still benefit from a broad rule of reason analysis of each individual case,99 the more economic approach being oriented toward an efficiency test simi...
